Hi all--I graduated with my BA in psych this spring and am looking into direct entry programs for PMHNP. However, I lack essentially all the prerequisites for nursing (except stats, which will be 5+ years old when I am ready to apply...).
How did you complete your prerequisites if you took them post-bac? Is a 4 year school school preferable to a community college? I think I am a competitive applicant (3.9+ gpa, extensive research experience, currently training as an EMT, etc.) and don't want to do anything that would hurt my application. Can anyone confirm that they got into top programs like Yale, Penn, etc. with CC prereqs?
Also, does it matter what prereqs are completed when you apply? i.e. is it better to have a grade for A&P I available rather than Bio 101? Thanks in advance!
